Wake me up, when the Deadline ends!
The 2016 NHL Trade Deadline was a boring snooze fest and nothing happened, and this didn’t upset anybody more than Vancouver Canucks fans.
Geeta, Dave, P Mac and Ryan join you this week to calm everyone down after an uneventful trade deadline in Vancouver. Radim Vrbata and and Dan Hamhuis remain Canucks and no deal at all was made by GM Jim Benning. But why not? Paul looks at a conspiracy theory and they look at what is in store for the Canucks in the final month of the regular season.
League wide, they look at the Maple Leafs’ gutting of the team, the Chicago Blackhawks bulking up to terrifying levels and whether or not that could affect their vibe and their chemistry. It’s happened before and could the pieces they added really have that much of an impact?
The gang runs down some of their ‘winners and losers’ from the deadline, who’s heading in the right direction and who’s struggling to stay afloat.
Finally, they present to you, Dougie Hamilton’s After Hours interview which may go down as one of the most awkward segments in television history.
